Which jobs have highest rate of depression?
Report says personal care, restaurant industries suffer worst cases of blues

WASHINGTON - People who tend to the elderly, change diapers and serve up food and drinks have the highest rates of depression among U.S. workers.
Workers who prepare and serve food — cooks, bartenders, waiters and waitresses — had the second highest rate of depression among full-time employees at 10.3 percent.

In a tie for third were health care workers and social workers at 9.6 percent.

Most of the women I know are food servers and diaper changers along with their career. Like...is there a choice in that anyway??
